Whatever the outcome of your trial, God is with you.
And so are we.
I am a survivor of ovarian cancer -- God declared that I would be a living testament to His Amazing Grace, not only because I survived this cancer, but that it was detected at such an early age in my life and at such an early stage of the cancer.
We who are in Christ know that all things are for His glory, no matter what those things may be and how difficult they may be for us to understand.
You are in my prayers.
You are in my prayers, I have not walked the walk myself but am currently walking it with my mother who has stage IIIC ovarian cancer. I praise God that you have such a strong faith and that faith will carry you through no matter what. God has placed around you people to support you and we, here on CB, will do just that as well. We will pray for you and encourage you as you travel this journey. May your eyes be on the beauty in each new day and may your hand be firmly clasped to God's. Blessings, dear sister, please keep us updated so that we may bathe you in prayer! Love, Andrea
Thank you for your kind and encouraging words. Virginia, your story of being a survivor reminds me that with God, all things are possible and he is bigger than cancer. Andrea, my prayers are with your mother as well as you. I know what it's like to have a parent walk that difficult road. Although God chose to take my dad home, I saw that although his body was ravished and broken by the disease, his soul was upright and strong as he rejoiced in the Lord. Although time-wise he was a baby Christian when he was summoned to the presence of our Lord and King (3 weeks), he walked as a mature Christian giant and had a tremendous impact on everyone who encountered him (even people who came to the hospital to visit other people)!
May the blessings of God be upon both of you as you encourage, uplift, share and love others!
A year has passed since I wrote this blog. I have gone places I never expected to go and God has done some amazing things in my life and I pray that He has also used my journey to strengthen and encourage others in some way. That would truly make this journey worth it!
I can truly say that we are safe in God's hands; even if those hands pass through cancer. He never has and never will fail us!
I have a routine screening on December 16. I am praying that the outcome will be as it was last June; NED (acronym for No Evidence of the Disease). I'd like to say it is not on my mind at all but that would be lying. So, instead I will say that if it should not be NED, I want to remember that God is bigger!
BTW, I want to thank all of my friends at CB for their prayers, encouragement and support. It is more important to me than you can ever know.
